Johnson has been buying farms a few
miles out from Oregon Oity that is he
was purchasing agricultural realty in his
lungs. He was a plausible-appearing
chap, tall and of good address. When
he talked, he spoke as one having
money and anxious to buy. The farm
ers who fed him on ministerial bill of
fare and showed him o--er their farms,
man t Know tie was talking for three
square meals a day, but they are disap
pointedly aware of that fact now. Two
different individuals on separate occa
sions drove Mr. Johnson to town to com.
plete the sale of their farms. Each
time Johnson left his companions at the
head of ' the Seventh- street
stairway, stating that he would meet
him down town, after a short visit to
his boarding house on the hill. John
son's landlady evidently locked John
son up when he made his last ride to
tne nead of the Seventh street stairway,
as he has not been seen since, and the
farmer waited around the bank all day
for the buyer to put in an appearance.
One farmer wasn't able to come to town,
but Johnson said ha would send for Sen
ator Brownell to come out and prepare
the transfer papers, and also would get
Surveyor-General Meldrum to raa out
the boundaries. He told one farmer
that he wanted to buy his place for
dairy purposes, but when the farm
owner'offered to show the prospective
buyer his stock, he said : '"That didn't
make any ditlerence, he would buy the
whole lot in a bunch."

Each year I have been adding to my stock of paints
until I believe I can safely say there is no stock in Clacka
mas County so complete.
While many of my customers have become convinced
that mixed paint (the right kind) is not only cheaper, but
wears longer than any lead and oil mixed by hand, yet for
those who wish to mix their own paint I have a supply of
oil and lead the quality of which I can guarantee.
I found long ago to obtain absolutely pure oil it wa.
necessary to buy Eastern linseed oil by the barrel and have
it put into cans myself. In this way the risk of its being
adulterated after leaving the factory is entirely eliminated.
By buying a quantity early in the season when prices were
lower it is easy for me to make very close prices.
'While it is almost impossible to give a complete list'
of prices, your attention is called to a few bargains such as
